We work with schools, NGOs, funding bodies, government and private companies to restore, protect and conserve the endemic flora and fauna. Together we can make Mauritius a paradise island again for its wildlife.
Our Commitment to you
• Deliver an amazing and authentic experience
• Ensure your visit supports our conservation mission and contributes to carbon offsetting
Owen and Mary-Ann’s love of snails, trees, birds, mountains, people and more.
Our journey started in 2006. Our conservation team began the heroic and enormous task of weeding, growing and planting native and endemic plants.
Fast forward to 2017. Our visitor centre opened. Why? Forest restoration is hugely expensive. We want to do it faster and expand our impacts. Plus, we want to share our love for nature with you.

Our conservation team of local men and women are the real heroes in our mission. They endure the heat, rain and steep slopes to do battle with invasive plants. It can be a discouraging task as exotic light-loving weeds are persistent. The battle is won when the plants that they nurtured in the nursery and planted grow tall. The native vegetation starts to naturally shade out the exotic plants and a native forest is recreated.
Our ecotourism team is a group of young men and women from Chamarel and the south of Mauritius, eager to share their passion for nature and the outdoors. Some of us have a strong conservation background having worked both locally and internationally for conservation organisations such as the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation.
We are all united by nature.
